It’s the moment American fans have been waiting on for more than four years: Radiohead is returning to the U.S.
On Monday, the hugely influential British rock band announced a spate of new tour dates, including their first American concerts since their spring tour in 2012. The shows include two-night stands at New York City's Madison Square Garden on July 26-27 and two dates at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, CA on Thursday, August 4 and Monday, August 8. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 18 at 10am PST and to combat scalping, fans will be limited to two tickets per order, among other restrictions.
The U.S. dates come in support of Radiohead’s upcoming ninth album, which the band recorded last fall. Although the album is still without a title or release date, it’s widely expected that the band will be releasing it (independently, of course) sometime this spring.
In addition to these U.S. shows and a series of May concerts in Europe, Radiohead had previously announced a series of international festival dates, including headlining performances at Barcelona’s Primavera Sound Festival in June and at the Osheaga Music and Arts Festival in Montreal in late July. Rumors are also circulating that the band may headline U.S. festivals like Lollapalooza in Chicago (they’ve already been booked for the Berlin edition) and San Francisco’s Outside Lands, which takes place the weekend between their two Shrine shows.
Regardless of where they play, Radiohead is expected to announce additional U.S. festival dates soon. Click the links to get tickets to their shows at the Shrine on August 4 and August 8 and keep it here on AXS.com for complete coverage of Radiohead’s new album and tour.
